What a wonderful thing for an author to hear…that a reader has connected so deeply with the character and the story that the last page leaves a longing for more. Because readers, by inviting the story into their heads and hearts, help co-create the book with the author, the reader is left with the task of moving the characters beyond the last page through any number of possible scenarios until he or she is satisfied and able to move on to another book, another cast of engaging characters.
